New covers on the shelf 2011

Old Penang Old Stories

For those who have been to this oriental island, whose shape is like a turtle and about 5 kilometers off the peninsula, these books are a pure delight of those sweet old memories.

I knew the writer well and was quite depressed when his book hit the stand. I told him that the cover design could have been better. I could have helped him out with the design, if I have time.

The next thing, he came to me abruptly one day, saying his books will be reprinted, and the publisher was happy to have a new cover. I was in.
